juvenile delinquent

I got a call on Friday and I'm sorry to say it wasn't my first. He was in the office again...had a bad day. First he came at someone with a fork in the lunchroom...then he was pushing and shoving kids out of line...then the biggest topper...he ripped off a girls hat as he yelled "YOU ASIAN GIRL!!". Yep...it was a proud day for this mother...
I knew it would be a different experience sending him off to school...he has such a huge personality! The boy who disrobed every Sunday in his first year of Primary...the boy who jumped off the exam table right into his Doctor's arms because he had "become" Wolverine...the boy who would rip his shirt right off wherever we were because he was The Hulk...He's also the boy who loves his mom so much he would like to marry her...the boy who tells us he loves us all the love in the planet...the boy who brings me so much laughter and joy.
Oh, the joys and trials of motherhood...Wish me luck at my meeting at the school today!

Oh boy. Good luck today. You're going to need it. Maybe I need to send a little chocolate along with your BeMine today. Chocolate makes everything better.

Oh, girlfriend, hope it went ok. The things they never told us when we started having kids. Good thing, I guess.

Cindy said...

Oh no, I hope it all goes well! He is a boy with a lot of energy! You are a funny writer!

Wow! Good luck with that! Chocolate does sound good. If you need an ear when you're done, you know my cell #.
